Get a Look at Charlie's New Angels

New Charlie's AngelsFans of the original '70's TV show, Charlie's Angels were so thrilled back in 2000 to see the divine trio hit the big screen, they treated the film to a huge box office take that saw Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu return for a sequel three years later in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

The sequel fizzled, as they often do, and so did the big screen love affair with the Angels and their lovable boss, Bosley.

Flash forward eight years. The Angels are back, but this time they're hoping to recapture the small screen magic that launched three relative no-names into the pop-culture stratosphere some 24 years ago. The Charlie's Angels TV pilot has begun filming with Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzeh stepping into the roles popularized by Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and the late Farrah Fawcett.

That's all fine and dandy, and we wish them loads of success, but the most shocking news about this television series reboot (besides its setting relocation to Miami Beach) is the role of Bosley.

In the upcoming series, Bosley will be played by Ramon Rodriguez who says the character is not only going to be "completely different from what we've seen before" by getting a bump to the front, but "the mere fact of them casting me, it shows they’re going in a new direction -  with respect to everyone else," says Rodriguez. "This is a whole new take. This is my version of Bosley." Apparently Bosley will be a tech-savvy McGyver type and will offer the chance for Rodriguez to put to use his newfound martial arts skills. An ass-kicking Bosley? Really?

Do we really want Bosley front and center, or should the emphasis remain where it always was, on the Angels? Time will tell, and good luck with all that.
